Oh No! Forest Fires Canadian Music Week Toronto ON, March 5 to 8
Toronto’s newest indie rock amalgamation held back nothing for their set at the Horseshoe. Comprised of former members of the Most Serene Republic, Five Blank Pages, Fox Jaws, and the Vulcan Dub Squad, the idea of it all sounds promising. But what sounds even more promising is the limitless noisy post-rock they write, and relentlessly perform on stage. After just losing a lead guitarist and vocalist, the now four-piece were less than tight but more than made up for it with the juicy hooks, triumphant group sing-alongs, and impossibly-hard-not-to-dance-to cover of "Footloose.” It made for one of the messiest, yet most fun, sets all week from a band with enormous potential.
